Gamertag Recovery Problem - Downloading Profile for 3 Hours

So my Gamertag got corrupted the other day, and as this has happened once before I simply followed the steps I had previously and deleted my profile before going into gamertag recovery. For some reason though the "downloading profile" section of the process is taking a ridiculous amount of time. It has currently been downloading for three hours and has not even reached the half way point. Is there something I am doing wrong, and if so how can I fix it?

 

Thanks.

Nope. Profiles are big old beasts at the best of times so it can take some time to download them.

Well last time I had to do this was a couple of months ago and it took about ten minutes then if I remember correctly, so surely something must be wrong?

If the bar is making progress, your best bet is to let it be. Have you obtained significantly more gamer score in the past few months? That would explain the change.

It's been almost five hours now and it's about three quarters done. Hehe, I guess I'll just have to play the waiting game. Thanks anyway.
